Improvements 

Made in Drill Hall 



Inside Entirely Made Over. New Floors, Locker Room 
and Showers are Features 



Under the direction of IVof. Curry S. 
Hicks, head of the department of Ph> sical 
Kdiication, workmen have this sumnur 
transformed the Drill Hall into a rt- 
si)ectable campus building Alterations 
and repairs have been numerous, and 
although the appropriation was not very 
large for conducting the \sork, an ex- 
cellent job has iKvn accomplished. To 
all those who knew the Drill Hall at its 
worst, a tour of insi)ection is worthwhile. 
New hardwood floors of ina()le have been 
laid in the whole of the ground floor. 
Practically the entire interior has re- 
ceived a heavy coating of flat white paint 
to aid lighting facilities. 

Perhaps the most satisfactory im- 
provement, so far as the student Ixnly is 
concerned, is the change in the basketball 
rtoor. No noticeable increase in size has 
l)ejn made in the court, but the entire 
playing surlace has In-en nio\ed awa\ 
Irom the south wall ainjut twelve feet. 
This was made possil)le l)\ placing the 
nets on the lieams immediately north ol 
the ones on which thev had hung l»elore. 
On the west and east sides of the hall, 
the steam pi|H's have Inen raised to 
allow nK»in for three rows of bleachers on 
either side. An arrangemeiu has Ix-en 
effected whereby a ixjrtion of the beams 
ilirectly in front of each iuisket will be 
removed, allowing a clearance ot '22 teet 
,is compared with IT feet formerly. The 
roof of the building now constitutes the 
ceiling of the hall, and lights have U-en 
placed fxtween every pair of beams to

The list of liimor students for the 
coming term has just been iK)sted on the 
IK-an's Hoard. That this system has 
been successful in the first Near of its 
existence here at M..\.t". is shown b> the 
fact that in the latest list there are 
Uv'arly thrive times as many stutlents in 
group HI as there were in the siime group 
in the first list. The senior class is the 
only class represented in ( uoup I in the

last Thurstlay eseiiing with the yelling 
of si-veral hundred stmlents giving vent 
ti) their enthusiasm ami ho|H's for the 
t(M)lball team in the coming season. 
.Although there have been better .ind 
mote enthusiastic mass meetings the one 
the other night was very good considering 
the length of time Ix-fore the first game. 
"Larry" Jones '2(), captain of the '2.") 
team anil entl on that team started the 
s|H'et hes for the e\ening. "Al" Cook '2S, 
captain of this year's team gave a short 
talk and he was followed by Prof. Irank 
P. Kand who s|M»ke alK)Ut aca<leniic 
activities "as athletically as |X)ssible". 
After Professor Kand, "Vic" Hutterfield, 
son of ex-presiilent Putterfield spoke and 
then Piof. Curry S. Hicks gave a short 
s|Kech, emi)hasiziiig the im|M)rt.in( c of a 
well balaiued program of aca<lemi( activi- 
ties, and athletics as well as slu<lies. 
President Thatcher was the last sin-aker 
on tlu' program and he siiid that just as 
he was con\ inced that a successful team 
ntust play together without any out- 
standing stars so must a successful college 
pla\ together in e\ery resiK'Ct. He aske<l 
the members of the fiHttbatl team if the\, 
as the first le.iiii to go out on the field 
during his presidency, would bring home 
a \ictory after the hrst game. Hie

FOOTBALL MATERIAL 
SHOWS MUCH PROMISE 

Ten Letter Men Back Must Fight to 
Hold Positions 

"Kid" Core's call for football candidates 
was answeretl Septendn-r (i, when .dxnil 
thirty men attended the o|H'iiing lettuii-. 
The stiuad increasiil to lhiil\ fi\e the 
following day. Practice was held three 
times daily until the first day of < lasses 
and now the men art- working aftern<M)ns 
on the field. Ten letter men returntd 
along with some fine material that last 
yt-ar's list of iiieligibbs containe<l .nul 
some that last fall's fri-shm.m sipiad de- 
\elo|H'd. The "Kid" has a large coaching 
stall to aid him in whipping a team into 
shaiH- that will do jiistic..- to the .imount 
of work done 1)\ the fellows in their 
spirited struggle lor positions. 

Although ten letter mm Ii.k k means a 
strong nucleus of ex|K'rienced material, 
thesi- men an- by no means sure of their 
IMisitions. Bowie and McKittrick .ire

Mills and Walkden an* making il«'s[M'rat<' 
eflorts to liiild down the t.icike jobs while 
Kelton is finding all kinds of com|H-lition 
for his position at gu.ird. In the ba< kfield, 
(aptain C(M)k, Ouinii, llilyiid, Johnson, 
an<l Tufts are all making strong bids for 
legular assignments.

Now that registration is (ompleled, it 
is found that the clas.s of P.t;{l leasts of a 
total oi is;! students, three more than the 
Ireshm.in class of last year. It is interest-

.\t the o|)ening assend>l\ of the college 
sear last We<lnesda\ , l>r. Kosctjc- W. 
Ihatcher, the new president <»f the 
t ollege, gave an address of welcome lo 
the students and faculty. President 
Thatcher comes to M.A.t . from the 
Cot mil Kxixriment Station at (Geneva. 
New York, where he was director. 

In his address of welcome he expressed 
his |)leasure at being able to Ik? the head 
(if the Massachusc-tts Agricultural College 
and predicted close co-o|K'ration Ix-tweeen 
I he faculty and himself. President 
Ih.itcher brought, among (jther things, a 
\'iy interesting (ili^, r\ at ion on t lie suc- 
cess of the alunuti of this college. I le said 
'hat it had Ix^en his ex|)eiienre. during a 
I'lM^ period of years in coiimci imi wiih 
tilucational institutions, that the gradu- 
ates of M.A.C. are practically without 
I xception deix-ndable. resiKjnsible men 
aii'i that they art recognized as sucfi the 
ii.untry over. President Thatcher attri- 
I'Uted this characteristic of .\ggie alunuii 
not only to the excellent and well planned 
courses offered here but also the the 
traditions and spirit of the college. He 
made it very clear to the freshmen that. 
if they desire to l)e classed as "Aggie" 
nt-n. with the qualities concede<l to 
A^-ie men throughout the country,

The annual sixty-man ro|R- pull, held 
on Saturday afteriKMm across th« jxjnd, 
residted in the represenl.it i\es of the 
freshman class Ining dragged through the 
water ami mud to their first defeat. Poth 
classes presented a sturd\ gnjup of men, 
but the so|>homores ^^ot the jump at tlie 
-start and were ne\er headed from their 
lead. I'lJiJer-classmen. as usual, coached 
Iwjth sides, and slowly and surely the 
freshmen were dragged towards the 
water's e<lge. Here the\' rallied for a 
moment, but it was not long l»efore the 

feet of the lil^t \iMrling were wet. .\lioUt 

four minutes from the starting gun, the 
line of freshmen had entered the w.iter, 
aflc-r which il w.i- mereK a m. titer e)i 
time hefore tlii' eiuire te.iiu w.is j)ulled 
through. 

At the hring ol the nim- niiiuUe gun the 
first ye.ir men h.id all crossi'd the pond 
and the contest was brought to a ( lose 
in slightly over nine minutes. 

The (ontest attracted its usual wide- 
attention, the side-lines Ixing lined with 
students, faculty .and friends. The [xjiid 
was well filled with water this year, un- 
like last \«'ar when the e\ent harl to be

ANOTHER YEAR 

Once anain the do«)rs of learning have 
ofKued to those who seek instruction 
tlurein; once more the walks are lined 
with students moving from class to class. 
To >ome it means the continuation of a 
t.isk already iKgun, to others it marks 
the iKginning itself of a new period in 
their lives. The seniors si-e themselves 
starting on the last lap of their under- 
graduate career lure at Aggie. The 
freshmen to whom this is all so new and 
strange, can but peer inttj the dim mists 
of their future four years.

FOOTBALL \L\TERIAL 
( 'onllnued from Pafte I) 

To make these letter men work for 
their jobs are a score or more other as{)i- 
rants for the team. Burbank is doing a 
fine piece of work at en<l while Kiirrer 
and I'lumer are not far bohin<l him. 
Ibackley, Lincoln, and Clements are 
making it hot for the tackles, lor the 
guard positions l<u<l<|uist, \Lirx, Drew, 
Sullivan, and Crowley are working their 
hardest. Mann and Morawski, Uith 
soiihomores, are fighting il out for center 
with the h)rmer having a slight edge. 
Faux, "Denny" Crowley. Hond, and Smith 
are all after baik field positions while 
Kneekuul has practically taken one away 
from thi- letter nun. He is only a very 
MilK-rfuial observer who c.innot see that 
there is a closc-ly contested light in pro- 
gress for places on this* s«ason's varsitv. 
l'io-p.cls for the loming year look a 
Utile more than favor.ible. The line 
promises to Ik- heaviei and more powerful 
th.in th.il of the fall of "211 team. As yet 
llu- bat ktiehl is a bit rusty, but il needs 
only a Itvv game- to smooth it down into 
.1 first cl.is- ipuirtet. -As usu.il, "Kid" 
♦ .ore's condilitming h.is brought results, 
and .dthough the practice sessions h.ivi- 
beeii strenuous ami numerous, the sipi.id 
is in tin«- shajH-. Two full games li.ivi- 
been pl.ived the past week, in the first of 
which .A tt-ain scored lour touchdown- 
.mil goals to none for IL In ihe second 
g.inie. with r.idically changed lineups, no 
scores resulted. 

This latter gaim- has given us our 
strong«-st impression of the varsity. 
There set nis to be a world of defensive 
power, and l.irge gains were lew and f.ir 
between. "Cookie" and Kiuel.md did tlu- 
1.1-t ball carrying while tin- defensive work 
..f n liiu- wasoulst.inding. Only two first 
downs vvtr.- scored bv .\ team oiil-ide ol 
.1 Jlt-y.ird run bv C.ipl. t ook .md a 1'.") 
v.iril tear by KnieLind. "« liH ' Johii-on 
and "Dutch" Uudiiuist did the punting 
.mil .iveragul well ovi r forty yards. Kor- 
w.irds wtre numerous, but clever defense 
work on the p.irt of opposing b.icktields 
broke m.mv of them iiit. 

With thi- o|)ining of Uu- season only a 
lew d.ivs aw.iv, the student liody ha- 
reason to expect a successful season. With 
st-ven games away and only two at home, 
the team has a tough sdudule ahe.id. but 
if the spirit they have -hown continues, 
the eleven will surely make up for last fall. 
"Kid" C.ore has had a l.irge and com- 
1 elenl coaching staff with him since prac-

CREAT IMPROVEMENTS 

(Continued from Pafte 1) 

dispel shadows. Ihe ventilation system 
has also been atljusted to more efficiency 
so that now several windows may be 
oiH-ned in such a maniu-r as to shoot the 
air up into the hall rather than create a 
draught directly through it. With the 
new floor, increased bleacher space, better 
illuiiiin.itioii, and more efficient ventila- 
tion, we can entertain visiting basketball 
fives without apologetic feelings. 

C.oing through the locker room one i an 
si-e still more improvements. The shoot- 
ing gallery has Uen changi-d end for end 
.mil built in between the loi ker room and 
the m.iin tliM)r. This gives the co-eds an 
opjM)rtunity to use the range U-cause il 
now has a separate eiitraie on the north 
>idi- of Ihe building. Windows have U-en 
inserted in the wist f.ice of the structure 
whith formerly housed the sh(H)ling 
gallery. Removing the range to its new 
location has practically doubled t he 
liM-ker space. Only 9b lockers h.ive iMin 
added to the riM)ni, but there is now ade- 
<iu.ite space in which to dress, space that 
w.is kicking before. The old unsanitary 
shower riM>m has lieen removed in favor 
of the ritk- galkry, and a tiled shower 
room constructed on the stiuthwest cor- 
ner with a capacity of ten showers, only 
live of whith .ire installed as yet. .Adja- 
unt but uiiconnectecl with it is .i tiled 
toilet room. -A ihirtl new portion to t he 
locker room is a riMini on the northwest 
corner for visiting teams. It is devi.sed to 
serve as a place for team talks and to 
k)ck up the proiH-rty of the visitors. The 
loom also cimtains the new janitor's desk 
.md will serve .is his office 

A lew other ch.inges and additions 
which are not so obviiuis but which -how 
the carefulness in the det.iils of the plan 
of alterations ought to be mentioned. .All 
the exits from the buikling open outward 
tt> insure against fire hazard. .A small 
roof has iK-en added to the front of the 
building to protect the steps from accpiir- 
ing their usual coat of ice tiuring the 
winter. -At the south entrance to ihe 
iocker room, a shei-l of lineoleum is to 1k- 
l)laced with a Intich handy. This will aid 
the departnunl in keeping the floor in 
giKxl condition by making it handy lor 
men to reiiu)ve their shoes. 

Now that the Drill Hall has been reno- 
vated, the problems of keeping it clean 
and in goiMi condition arisi-. The college 
has jirovided for the former by apiHiinting 
a full time janitor, Mr. Dudley. He is 
to have charge of the lockers and will 
issue keys from his office in the visiting 
teams' room. The other problem can Ik- 
met only with the co-oiK-rat ion of the 
students. Reminders in the form of 
signs have Ik-cu placed at vantage {Xiints 
in Ihe buikling and every one using the 
hall is a-ked by the depart nu-nt to conform 
lo its requests. 

.Although conditions are vastly im 
proved, we are still far from having a 
model gymnasium. No corrective ap|)a- 
latus is provided for to furnish those 
students who c.innot iiaiticipate in mili- 
t.i y drill with p.oiH-r exercisc-s. .An 
indoor sp.ice is lacking which means a 
letup in i)hysic.il work during the winter 
Ih I ati-e of weather conditions. Then, too, 
-p.ue in the locker room is still inade- 
ipi.ite to Like i.ire of all the men out for 
.ithletir- which m.ikes it nece-s.MV to use 
the basements of North .md South 
Colleges. Nevertheless, the work of the 
summer h.is improved conditions greatly,

Your Fall Hat should be a Mallory. Not because they cost a little less than other good makes but because they are "Oavanetted." 
No other thing you wear gets as much abuse from the elements as your hat and the invisible waterproofing that ''Oavanette" gives is 
the difference between a hat that holds its shape and color and one that does not. Prices at $6 and $7. Other good hats at $5.

PRINCE ALBERT is the kind of a 
smoke you get clubby with, right 
off the bat. You'll be calling each 
other by your first names after the 
very first pipe-load. It is so gen- 
uinely friendly, in spirit and in 
fact. 

P. A. treats your tongue and 
throat as gently as a mother 
handles a new-born baby. Never 
a bite. Never a parch. These are 
details, of course. The thing you'll 
remember longest is that wonder- 
ful taste! So cool, so sweet, so 
soothing. 



No matter how hard you hit 
it up, this long-burning tobacco 
never hits back. You can go to it 
before classes, and right through 
to Lights Out. Get yourself a tidy 
red tin of Prince Albert today. 
The School of Experience has 
never produced a greater smoke 
than good old P. A. 



p. A. »« told every 
where in tidy red lint, 
pound and half-pound 
tin humidors, and 
pound crystal-glass 
humidors with sponge- 
tnoislener lop. And 
always with every bit 
of bite and parch re- 
moved by the Prince 
Albert process. 



Fringe albert 

— no other tobacco is like it!

Its Excuse 

No, nentle rea.ler, i he above tith- .loes 
iK.t sijjnify a retrenchment in the stupe 
of M.A.C. to practi.al a^ri. iilt ore, nor 
does it stujnd a .all f«)r a "l.a. k t.» the

True, the sincere agriculturist at .\nnie is 
t<M) often the butt .>f "rube" jokes coiii- 
pose.l by his just as sincere and self- 
acknowledned liber.il classmates. How- 
ever, this lam.iilable ...ndition is not the

Your Fall Hat should be a Mallory. Not be- 
cause they cost a little less than other good makes 
but because they are *' Cra vane t ted." No other 
thing you wear gets as much abuse from the ele- 
ments as your hat and the invisible waterproof- 
ing that *'Cravanette" gives is the difference 
between a hat that holds its shape and color and 
one that does not.

Harvard frosh team. The team is one 
of the iKst ever put out by a freshman 
class, according to those who have fol- 
lowed the sport here at -Aggie. This week 
the schedule calls for a lengthening out 
of the courses run, so that the runners 
will Ik- belter filled for the long course al 
Harvanl. .Although the times of the ten 
nun who will make the trip have been, 
as a whole, al)Ove the average, that of 
Nash has Iniii ex( »plional. 

Thosi- who will make the trip are: 
Waller C. liiiker. Henry I). CariK-nter,

Whatever the team does al Harvard, 
it is sure that there will be good material 
for next year's varsity team. 

DIRECTORHAsicELL 

TO LEAVE M,A,C. 



Has Been Connected With Ciillefie 
for Many Years 



Sidney B. Haskell, direc tor of the Lx- 
(Rrimenl Station and active he.id of the 
division of agriculture, has recently ac- 
cejHed a p<jsition as manager of the agri- 
cultural <lepartment of the Synthetic 
Nitrogen Products Corporation, one of the 
largest fertilizer corporations in the wi)rld, 
with offices in New York and Havana. It 
is his intention to leave Amherst for New 
Vork, to assume his new <iulies, sometime 
in Deceml)er. 

Since his graduation in HK)4 Mr. 
Haskell has Ix-en connecteVl with the 
college in some capacity except during 
the years 1917-1920 when he left .Andierst 
to take the chairmanship of the sf>il im- 
provement committee of the National 
Fertilizer A--<Kiati()n with headquarters 
in Baltimore. During his connection with 
the college Mr. Haskell has Ixtn loved 
and esteemed by iIiom' who ( ver had 
relations with him. He showerl his 
interest for the college in many ways, 
chiefly in regard to campus and academii 
activities. He has for many years l)een 
president of the ,A( idemic Activities 
Board. The general >< iit iment on campus 
is that of deep regret at the recent news 
that Mr. Haskell is to leave us.

Aggie Team Huh Yet to Show 
Keal Sctkring Pt>wer 

With the season just more than halt 
over, M..A.C.'s footb.ill eleven enters tin 
harder |M>rti(in of its schedule with a 
record that tells of a team that has 
pl.iyed good loot ball and wretched finit- 
liall during its early season .schedule. 
.Amherst with its usual giNwl team is mir 
next opponent, and the (piestion in every 
miiul is what lo ex|Kct this .Sat urday. 

In the first game of the season, the 
team jouriu>yed tt> Brunswick and played 
.1 strong Bowdoin t»-am to a scoreless lie. 
Bowdoin has pnned itself since lo be .m 
eleven of no mean calibre, for after Uing 
defeated by N'ale's grc-.it team it has not 
lost a game with collc-ges that are in lis 
class. Dur team played gcNMl fiHitlull in 
that g.'tmc-. Bowdoin h.icl .1 hi-avy ex- 
|K'riencec| team, whicli wc lacked, but the 
spirit of the- Aggie club fighting against

I'ollowing this game, Bates won from 
I he Agates bya score cjf 7 loO, and .Middle' 
bury seven days later sent the same club 
down to its second clefeal bv a count of 
12 to O. in neither game did the te.im 
show the determined spirit that charac- 
terized their play against Bowdoin, an<l 
iH'cause ol that lack of light the shulouts 
were inevitable. 

Then c-ame the Willi. iiiis game which 
meant that wc were sl.icked up against 
one of the liest small college teams in 
the- east. Here the Agales came out of 
llieir stump and scored, threatening at 
other times, but a d.iz/ling set of lateral 
and fui ward |<aiised in a backfieki tiiat is 
shifty, fast, clever, was an advantage that 
Williams c Ic.irly had. Howe-, one of t lie- 
high |ioint scorers in the ICast, was a big 
factor in this game, and his elusive s|H-ecl 
made ]iractically all of Williams' |Ntinls.

(li need again, loach White has a de- 
pendable <lub at the other end of the 
town. The Wesleyan set-back will Ijc the 
Sabriiia's big motive force for their work 
lliis week, and our team has got to show 
every bit of s»ia|)piness that it can 
muster. 'Ihe Worcester game clearly 
sh«)Wi<i the lack of icstrve strength that 
"Kid" (.ore fairs. Walkden tore the 
hgameiils of his knee in this game and 
will be out prob.dily for the rest of the 
siaMiii. l.o.sing a dependable lineman 
iiH-ans more work for the scjuad, and when 
physical ability fails, the fighting spirit 
that is ofliines subject to ritlicule but 
wliidi has earned resi)ect nevertheless is 
the only alternative. 

'lirkets for the game are fast dis- 
apiMaring, and no .\ggie eleven can afford 
to show a lack of tight in any contest with 
Amherst. The outcome of a football 
game is hard to predict as Wesleyan 
proved last Saturday. The wearers of the 
purple may have a gwxl team, but let's 
not be licked before we start! It's up to 
the student body to help by giving the 
team a Inwst. On to .\mherst!

RUMOR 

In view of recent conditions on the 
campus preceding the announcement of 
Mountain Day, it wenis that a disser.- 
taticm on tin' subject of "rumor" is not 
untimely, lor more than a week the 
campus w.is literally Hooded with rumors 
of more or (usually.) less reaM.nable foun- 
datit.n. The speed with which the most 
casual statement bcronies absolutely 
authoritative- and pemtrates to every 
corner of the campus is an imfailing 
source of wonderment. 

t)f course, there are rumors and rumors. 
No doubt most of theni are as harmless 
as thos.' which have recently Uin prc\a- 
hnl n.ncerning Mcuintain Pay; but there 
are other kmd^ ol rumors which it would 
be far bi iter to suppress. Kach t)f us .an 
easily think d example >. from past y.ai>- 
lumc'.is involving the npulation of sonic- 
f. How-student; talk oi various ihiuK^ 
xvrong with the coIIck' ; S^"^>'P "f '» '"'" 
dr»cl dillerent things that \\ere better leli 
undi>cussed. The love of gossip ..ml 
M-andal seeni> to Ik- inherent in the human 
familv. but cannot we, as college slude nt>, 
overcomi- to some extent, at least, our 
desire to hiar and to si.rcad unsavory 

rumor>? 

11 Nou lionolly think that there is 
something wrong with the college, and 
you have a constructive criticism, the 
columns of the ColUy.iau are always optn 
for eommunications; but surely we should 
not allow our college community to de 
cene-rate into "M.iin Sine t".

Fifteen Years Ago This Week 
The "College Sijinal" Said 
"Dr. .Mexander Meiklejohn was offi- 
. ially installed as president of Amherst 
College in College Hall Wednesday. 
.\mong the notable educators who at- 
te-iided the ceremony were Presidents 
Lowell of Harvard, C.arlield of Williams, 
l-"aunce of Urown, and Hyde of Howcloin. 
President liulterfield of M.A.C. was also 
present." 

r.S. Dr. Meiklejohn was succeeded by 
Dean Olds, and soon Amherst will be 
inaugurating another president, Arthur 
S. i'ease. Dr. Meiklejohn is now in 
charge of the new University of Wiscon- 
sin l-:x|)erimental College, an innovation 
which embodies some of the former 
.Xmherst leader's ideals of a liberal edu- 
cation. No fixed program of studies 
handicaps the favored members of this 
student lK)dy who pursue wisdom by 
untried paths.

Williams Wins 

A noticeable feature at Williamstown 
last Saturday was the abundance of 
M.A.(". upiM-rclassmen and the lack of 
freshmen. Perhaps the unusual schedule 
has prevented the- frosh from becoming 
acepiainted with the true Aggie spirit. To 
those of unwavering loyalty it was a 
thrilling ex|M-rience to st-e the whole- 
he-aru-d, consistent, and vociferous sup- 
port which the Mass. Aggie supporters 
gave their eleven. The increasing lop- 
>itltcliuss of the score made no difTerence 
in the amount of encouragement con- 
tributed. 

liP 

Some ilay soon those Agates are going 
lo blossom out! A faint indication of 
their latent powers came in the- first 
cpiarter wlit-n Williams was oiilclassed.

THE BULL SESSION 

kc-iirinted from Silionl mid Sadety, X'ol. 
\X\ , No. (147, May L'l, Ilt27. 

Every earnest student of education, e - 
|He ially if he pursues imliictive methf)d- 
of study and examines phenomena as they 
arise, must give careful attention to the 
"bull session" or "bull fe-st."* It consti- 
tutes, in fact, erne- of the most im[X)rtant 
units in the whole machinery of university 
education. 

Is any intelliK«-nt jR-r.->eiii ><j out ol 
touch with actual affairs as not to know 
alM)Ut these bull sessions? Is any one 
ignorant of tht- fae t that students gather 
in grou|»s of I wo or four or six, in private 
rooms, dormitories or esiH-cially in fra- 
ternity houses, and for hours ;it a tinn 
aruiie and discuss every matter within 
their shining hejrizon? It may Ix; the 
dividing line between physiology and

salutary; but the n«t result iu greatly en- 
hanced by the malt it involved, lor the 
frat houw bull s.ssi()ns habitually (on- 
sider lu|)ic» of real solidity. Naturally 
these are drawn mainly from the field of 
university studies, esi>ecially from the 
more jvopidar ami viviil (ours -i. If some 
enlerprisiuK university president really 
cared to know what courses in his curricu- 
lum were taking etTect he could not 
|H)ssibly devise a better line of investi- 
gation than to dis«tiver which ones were 
supplying the most matter for these bull 
fests.

tonished to he.ii llienwelves (piolcd as 

they an-. 

"KenienilRr what John D. told ii> last 
term?" fiiiys one bull throwir. 

"Yes, but old Pinkie told us ju-^l the 
opiMi.site in (ieolony t')," siiys another. 

The teacher who i an proict i himself 
thus into tins*' educational arena?, ha^ no 
reason to think that lie is not rtachin^ his 
pupils; and if his t«a» hin^ comes through 
thest- vulcanic ordtals undama;;(Ml he may 
»-onsider himself established at the head 
of the lyceuni. Here is where teaching 
takes effect ; and the course of lectures 
which is so inno< nous as nev»r to be 
drawn into a bull xs^ion minlit about as 
well Ik- cancelled fntm the university 
catalo^ui'. 

The bull fest is a lusty, in.li>;enous 
j;rowth, in every res|K'ct showinij; it'- 
adaptation to the academic soil .uid 
clinuite. It has never Inen disturbed by 
IM-da^oyic interference nor bli«hte<l by 
faculty rules. It could easily la- <lenraded 
by such means to the level of exanis and 
lab. periods. Its exaltetl value in the 



educational process tempts to such "im- 
I,r<.v.-ments." One easily thinks how 
useful it woulil be to "nuide" these 
sessions by intrtxIucinK valuable topics; 
„r Ik.w thrilling the result if champion 
bull throwers from rival fraternities were 
pitted axainst one another in a public 
arena. Hut one also shud<lers to think 
how instantaneously the system would 
be ruined if the iR-daKORues ever laid 
hands on it. 

Still it is worth serious study and I 
suanesl that the next parti* ularly briuht 
student who wants to take his do< t orate 
ill education be assigned to make a 
railiial investigation of the bull fest, the 
most elficient educational prwess to ,be 
f.iuixl ill the modern imivt-rsity.

1929 INDEX 

Work in the various departments ol 
the 1U29 Index Board is rapidly pro- 
gressing under the leadership of John S. 
Wo(xlbury, editor-in-chief. The editors 
are as follows: Irene L. Bartlett, statis- 
tics; Leonard W. Morrison, literary; 
Harold S. Adams, photography; and 
I'rescolt D. Young, business manager. 
Most of the iK)sitions as assistants are 
tilled, but there are still some \ acancies 
in the literary and statistics departments 



There is to be a Two- Year rifle team 
this year. The co-eds will also have a 
team, and |)08sibly the faculty. 



In the latest Cavalry Journal there is 
a review by Major Briscoe of the book 
entitled "The ICvolution of the Horse." 
This book was written by Professor

NEW SEED LABORATORY 

A seed laboratory of which Miss 



i:iizal)eth F. Hopkins is in charge has 



liecn recently installed in the Control 
Service Station and is largely a conse- 
quence of the new seed law which is to 
go into effect on November 1. The main 
business of the new laboratory is to 
inspect seeds and see that they are 
pro{xrly labelled before they can be sold. 
At i)resent Massachusetts is the only 
state in New Fngland and one of the few 
states in the Union which does not have 
a law regulating the sale of agricultural 
seeds. As a result of this unfortunate 
legislation this state has been the "dump 
ing ground" for all sorts of impure seeds. 
The new law should remedy the trouble- 
some seed conditions, for it provides for 
a "true labelling" of agricultural seeds. 
Kach sample before it can leave the 
lalM)ratory must bear a laUl stating its 
connnon name, percent of purity, name 
and perc<nt of weed seed present, |>er- 
centage of germination, dale the sample 
was tested and the name and addr.-ss of 
the vender. Particular attention in 
analyzing seeds is given to the presence 
of noxious weeds, such as quack gray, 
Canada thistle, dodders and wild mustard.

superiority. They find it fidfilled in 
Camels, and place them overwhelmingly 

first. 

You should know the tastes and

new pleasure. And the more of 
them you light, the more enjoyable.

Leonid Tulsa Declares Bolshevism 
g^_^ g is Failure 



:^-«ii' 



.\ new insight on Holshev ism and other 
lusloii.s iH-rtaiiiinn lo Russia was K'ven 
last Thursday afterno.»n b\ Leonid Tulsa, 
who lectured on "Russia— Its Past, 
Present, and lulure" in Howker .\iidi- 
toriuni. Mr. lul.a's t.ilk, inlersi.ersed 
as it was with many aiiecloles an.l 
illustralive stories, was a revelation t<. 
many whose ideas ..ii liu- country h.id 
U-eii ta'kei! from the press. 

piiisiness conditi..i.s to.lay in Russia, 
sai. Mr. Tulsa, are horribly complex an.l 
tan>iK-d. The novt-riinu-nt . which under 
I lie H..lslievistic rule has l.ikeii over all 
the <'oiii.iie.(e of the t.iiintry. is bi'Kiiiniiin 
to timl .11.1 ili.it o.ily .1 business iii.in can 
run a business. As ex.imi.les ot the wav 
in which the ^jovernm.nt ..Ihcials coiidii. t 
the business he liled several annual re- 
ports whi.h have U-en haiul.-d in l.ir 
single (onipanies. One such reix.rt ..f a 
railroad i-on.ern. ...riipied 1S,(MN» pa^es 
and cost *4,.".<MI,IMK) to prepare. 

The siK-aki-r stat.-il that llu- Kussi.in 
laii^iuiK.- is the ricli.sl in all l-airo|>c-. For 
exaiiipU- whereas the FiiKlish noun has 
oiilv ..lu- or two f.iriiis the Russian nouns 
((.miiionly have fifty. In tlu- s.iiiu- w.iv 
there an- 4;{ forms to .1 Russian verb to 
.our b.ur, and 2t'. forms to a Russi.m 
a.lje.live lo fiur three. This nix-s to 
m.ike i.p .1 richness of jxH-tic form, s.iid 
Mr. Tiilsii. It also makes possibU- the 
use of s|Kcilic words for dilferent mean- 
ings. 

H As to the j^reat men whi. h Russia has 
jirodiued the s|M-aker iiiention«-d R.u h 
manninotf. the pi. mist, Men.leljeffe. th.- 
chemist, ami other noted scientists an.l 
men of arts. In regard i.. the i)ro<lu.ts 
that Russia has niveii I., the worl.l, Mr. 
Tulsa spoke of alfalfa, oats, barley, and 
maiiv kinds of appl.-s. 

Mr. Tulsa stated that the- Russians as 
.1 w hole were very ambitious, and gave as 
illustraliims llu- facts that the lower 
classi'S, the farmers, ha.l ornani/ed in 
I'.HK"., 4rilH) co-o|x-rative Mnielies whi.h 
nunilx-r has since jjrown to over till.lMHl. 
This is all the more remarkable when it 
is realized that 7:{ pen eiit .if the |M>pnla 
tion is illiterate. 

Mr. Tulsa himself is .1 Russian and was 
educai.'.l in llu- ImiK-ri.il I'niversity at 
Moscow. Later he taunht natural sciences 
in cenir.d SiUrLi. Sim <• he was fourU-.-n 
years ol.l he has supiM.rted his family. II.

This would be a safe, sound and sensible state- 
iiuiil of a laudable ambition on my pait. 
Tu»k Nut Su Simple 
But the biief study that 1 have been able lo 
make of ths situation with which the Colleue and 
ii~ new President are conlioiited convinces me that 
the lask before us is not so simple as this. To be 
sure, the land-atanl' colleues in general, and the 
Massachusetts .Vnriv ultural t ollege in iwrliculat. 
liave l.ihii.il them a ileuilv defined i.uriwse and 
more than hall a century of succ'.ssful experience. 
\o one is iiioie appuciative than 1 am of ihe 
^l.lendill uchievemi-nls ol this nf and old iiistiiuiion. 
Its history, us tiaditions, and us noble men and 
w<.iuen were the attractive features which le.l me 
II. accei.t the tu.sition as its I'resideut when it was 
leiulere.l to me l.y ihe Board of Trustees. But the 
pr.il.l.n.s ol the I olle«e of the future cannot be 
s.-ttl.d wholly on the basis of the exiK-rience of the 
pist. 

This is because the needs ot the . Iti/ei.s ol llie 
Ini eibuatioii of coUeuiale Kra.le are not 
but aie thaiiKiim liom year to year with 
ihaunini! economic and social coudiiions. This is 
true everywhere, bul il is a specialb sinnil.canl

overt act, by the time we entered it it was apparent 
that the wat was a life-and-dealh struKgle between 
the ate old idea that "miiilit makes iiuht' and the 
newer pimciple ol fiee peoples that "iiKl.l is

doniinioi. and his blasphemous assuniplion that 
"mil h and Holt" should lule evei> where, cou.d not 
stand beioie the loUoweis of the itreal Teacliei ol

w.iik out, with a new and supreme a»suiance that 
111 the end rlnhteousness will i.revail. riiihl will

This then is the basis lot my confidence in the 
fuluie of out public institutions. .\s a result. 1 am

resiiliiug in a sublime faUli, ll.at in this Ameri.an 
d.-mo.r,.iy right will always ultimaU-ly prevail. I 
know that th.-r.- ar<- many sim.-re anil t.alri<itii 
I itiz.ns who are actually f.arlul for th.- lutur.- ol 
our d.mocracy. But I have not fotgolt.n what 
was lo me the sui.remi- lesson of the World War. 
n.imely that our democracy i an meet any .-ni.-r 
K.-n. y that coiims to it. It sei-ms to me that the 
real lesson of our iwrticitKition in the War Ims 
li(-en lost sight of .luring tecent .lays but I In-lieve 
that fiiluM- historians will not fail to note it ami 
that il will b.-tome a part of the fabtic of oui 
national b.-iiig as il has of my own iH-rsonal ex- 
perience. That lesson is twofold in its character, 
but single in its effect. 

First, there is an unfailing cunfidence in An.eri- 
las future as a democracy based ui«)n its success- 
ful meeting of the suj.ren.e emi-rgenty. Prior to 
our entrance into the War. we were a nation at 
[R-ace. We wire thinking, j.lanning. working 
st.k-ly on the arts of jx-ace. I'reparedness for war 
had no place in our individual n.inds and no 
serious i«rt in our govi-rnn.ent iK.licies. 1 an. not 
one of lhos<? who d.-pre. ale this fact. Rather, I 
glory in il. I w»nt lo live in a country wh.>sc 
i-M-ry iiU.n is dir.-cted toward the ways of iKi'ace. 
If I had wanted to live in a nation whose princiiwl 
object was preparing for war, I would long ago 
have moved lo (..-rmany. But suddenly tlii- 
I«-ac<-ful nation was < aUed iitM.n lo enter the War. 
We met the call with a spirit and su.i.-ss that 
astounded lh<- world. To Im- sur.- we made mi> 
tak.-s which w.-re costly in lime, men and money. 
But th.- astonishing thing is thai we were able so 
MK.n U. r.-ilify thos.- mistakes and in suit, a 
u.arvelously slioil tim.- to ..rganiz.- our w.'allii. 
our indilstii.-s, our agrii iiltiir.- an.l oui in-ople ii.lo

lleiic.-, n.y unfailing contideme in Ameii...'- 
future. If w.- coul.l do so well the job which w.- 
hate and abhor, war. what can we not do at th. 
lask which we love and respect, ptait. 

In the second pla.e, the War taught that, in 
the end. ri<*ff.<«.nf s [irf.uih. Whatever may 
have la-en the pretext iiiK.n which it started and

.-.lucalion shoul.l »«• offered at this College. I find 
niys.-lf armed with certain very imsitive convic-

This is one of th.- so-, ailed land-granl colleg.-s. "

Mnrrill Act. which had as ils avow.-d i.uriK.se th.- 
lilK-ral and practical i-ducation of the in.lustrial 
classes in the several pursuits and profession-- of 
life." 1 think that there is no doubt that the 
author of that phrase sought to convey the id«-a 
that it was th.- iuK-nt ami desin- of this new legis- 
latioii to put within the n-ach ..f thos.- who wen-

should Ix- noted that the original a.l ili.l not 
siK-cify that it was to be tin- piiri«.se of th's.'

THE longer you smoke Prince 
Albert, the more convinced you 
become that it is the most satis- 
fying tobacco that ever nestled in 
the bowl of a jimmy-pipe. You 
get a brand-new thrill every time 
you open the tidy red tin and 
breathe that wonderful aroma. 

And when you tuck a load into 
the business-end of your pipe, 
light up, and open the drafts — 
say. Mister! Cool as a letter from 
home, telling you to cut down 
your expenses. Sweet as an unex- 
pected check in the next mail. 
Sweet and mild and long-burning. 



So mild, in fact, that it never 
bites your tongue or parches your 
throat, no matter how swift your 
pipe-pace. Yet it has that full, 
rich tobacco-body that lets you 
know you're smoking and makes 
you glad you are. Try Prince 
Albert, Fellows, and get the joy 
that's due you! Buy a tin today 
and get started!

FROSH AND TWO-YEARS

Neither Team Shows Superiority 
In Colorless Game 



In a slow uninteresting game, the 
Freshman and Two- Year elevens battled 
to a scoreless tie on the old varsity field, 
Friday, Novemlx;r li The frosh oix;ned 
the game with their second string back- 
field in the ranks, replacing them in the 
second perirxl with the first-string men, 
but neither quartet could make any head- 
way through the short course men's line. 
The game was hard fought, and because 
both teams were fighting hard, the con- 
test was without features. The summary:

Some say that Cairn^l is the mellowest ciga-

smooth. It's really all good things in one, 
and that is why it is supreme upon the 
pinnacle of modern favor. Camel's popu- 
larity today is the largest that any cigarette 
ever had. 

And, it costs something to make this kind 
of a sniake. It costs the choicest tobaccos 



that money can buy, and a blending that 
spares neither time nor expense. Each 
Camel cigarette is as full of value as the 
world of tobacco can give. 

You can be sure of smoking pleasure, 
serene and full, in these quality cigarettes. 
Smoke all of them you want; they simply 
never lire the taste.

were mentioned w.is the crow<ling of the 
doors at Draiier Hall by the freshmen, 
the continued movements of the students 
while in ihaixl or assend)ly, and the 
fact that the relations Ix-tween the

YOU can take the long, circuitous 
route and come to P. A. by de- 
grees, as you eventually will, or 
you can cut corners and start right 
with The National Joy Smoke. 
Open a tidy red tin of Prince 
Albert, drink in that rich, rare 
aroma, and you will decide on the 
quick route. 

Your first taste of P. A. in a 
pipe will clinch the decision. What 
a smoke, honestly! Cool as a con- 
ference in the Dean's office. Sweet 
as getting back on unlimited cuts. 
Mild as tea, but with that tobacco- 
body that satisfies your most 



deep-rooted smoke-hankering. 
No matter how fast you feed it, 
P. A. never bites your tongue 
or parches your throat. Just cool 
contentment and solid satisfaction 
with this long-burning favor- 
ite of experienced jimmy-pipers. 
Ream out the old pipe and give 
it a brand-new deal with good 
old P. A. — today.

by the Roister Doislerson Friday evening,

The comniiitee in charge is of the 
opinion that the evening will prove more 
interesting if the acts are prest-nted as 
surprises, so the program will not be given 
out until t hi- night of the event. However, 
attention may Ik- tailed to a f»-w of the

Kequiescat In Peace 

At this season of the year, the hot- 
stovc leagues resume their sthedules, and 
hymns of triumph or obituary for teams 
and athletes, and especially those or 
heroes of the (gridiron, are the current fad. 
Ill closing the Mass. A^nie season, let it 
be said that roach and players have done 
their lust. If victories were not luinier 
oils, Dame 1 Drtiine may be held respon- 
sible to a (crt.iin ixtent. The wonderful 
I xhibition staKcil auainsl Tufts, in which 
M.A.C. became one of the three eleviiis 
to store aKainst llie Jumbos this year, was 
proof of the (pi.ilil\ of trainiiiK recei\ed

.\t a meeting of the Interfraternit v 
( onference, held last Thursday evening, 
William U. Ki>bertson '-JS) gave a report 
of the meetings of the National Inter- 
fraternity Conferente held al the Hotel 
Pennsylvania, in Now York ( iiy, Nov. 
25 and 2t), to which he was sent as a 
delegate. 

Of the problems whit h were discussed 
at the National Interfraternity Confer- 
ence meetings |Mrhai)s the most interest- 
ing to those at M.A.C. was that of the 
relative merits of first week rushing ami 
deferred rushing. It is iiUeresling to note 
that a good lu.iny of the delegates were 
in favor of earh rushing. The chief argu- 
ment in favor of early rushing seemed to 
be thai it meant better si iiolarship lor 
all concerned, .\mong the other things 
whidi Kobertoon mentioned was the 
fact thai al several colleges and univer- 
sities the pledges are reipiired to room .it 
the fraternity houses and they are fiir- 
lh« rmore reipiirttl to be al their desks ;it 
7.. 'id every night with the exiepiion ol

lo the 1927 football team, its coaches 
and the students of .M.A.C'.: 

Having been a spectator of the Aggie- 
'Tufts game, 1 would like to express my 
thoughts to you in the columns of the 
Colleu^ian. 

The Aggie Mitlgets diti themselves, 
their coaches and their tollege proutl in 
the annual game with Tufts. I'laying 
untier the tremendous handicap of Ixing 
outweighetl nearly 19 pounds to the man 
and having two unearned scores marked 
against them in the early part of the 
game, they carried on to the end fighting 
for every inch. Such ])laying was an 
inspiration tt) the supiMirters of this team. 
Never has an Aggie team battled more 
courageously against such odds. There 
were no heavy men or stars on this team, 
yet time ami against the best plays of 
their stronger t)p|)onints were sio|)piil 
without gains. 

Indiv idii.iUv .mil colkctivelv this lillle 
team tleserves gre.it praise for the game 
lhe\ plaved, liven more jiraise (if that 
is possibles should go to the coaches, vsho 
develoi)ed a defense and an offense which 
worked surprisingly well, only \n-\n\i 
broken .mil slop|>ed al limes because ol 
the much greater weight and strength ol 
the opponents, .\ggie is inileed fortunali 
in having a coach of (he c.ilibre of 11. M 
Kid) C.tire. Let us hope we may be ablt 
lo keep him m.iny y.-ars. .Nevei was ;> 
losing lighting team given more loyal and 
hearty support by its coUe.igues than on 
November I'.tlli. It w.is well tiesorved and 
splendidly and continuously given. 

A good lillle ti .1111 was beaten by .1 goo.l 
big one. Till V pl.ived the g.ime, lhe\ 
gave their best, outclassed and out 
weighed they fought lo the finish. 

We are proud of the boys on iliis ti.un 
iheir loai lies and .11 live siipiiorlers.

WHAT you get out of a pipe 
depends on what you feed it. 
Millions of contented jimmy- 
pipers will tell you that Prince 
Albert commands a pipe to stand 
and deliver. You suspect you are 
in for some grand pipe-sessions 
the minute you get a whiff of 
P. A/s aroma. 

The first pipe-load confirms 
your suspicions. What a smoke, 
Fellows! Remember when you 
asked for the last dance and she 
said "YouVe had it!"? P. A. is 
cool, like that. And sweet as know- 
ing that she didn't really mean it. 



Sweet and mellow and mild and 
long-burning. 

Put your pipe on P. A. You can 
hit it up to your heart's content, 
knowing in advance that P. A. 
will not bite your tongue or parch 
your throat. That one quality 
alone gets P. A. into the best 
smoke -fraternities. And then 
think of all its other qualities! ^ 



p. A. it sold every- 
where in tidy red tins, 
pound and half-pound 
tin humidors, and 
pound crystal-glass 
humidors with sponge- 
fnoi^tenrr top. And 
always rith every bit 
of bite and parch re- 
moved by the Prince 
Albert process.

QUINTET READY 

e Continued from I'afte 1) 

This team is i.ipidly developing the fast, 
snappy passing attack that has charac- 
terized Aggie clubs in the past and will 
se-r\e as excellent reserve material for the 
coming se-ason as well as being the basis 
of next year's <]uintet. 

Biirbank, Hintze, and Kelley were also 
.\mong those to report early. Burbank is 
a guard while- Hintze is a center. Kelley 
is also a guard but is ineligible-. Paksarian 
joined the scpiad this week. .'\lt hough 
ineligible, he has like Kelley been cem- 
sidere-d by "Kid" valuable enough to 
retain in preparation for next year. 

Practice sessions have been numerous 
and varied. Teams from nearliy towns 
and cities have given opposition in several 
scrimmages. Blackboard talks and lec- 
tures have constituted a large jiart of the 
work. Results have certainly Ix-en ac- 
complished, and the team is all set for a 
successful season. Aggie fixes have set a 
record of :il wins in 41 starts over a period 
of three years which means that the pre- 
sent club has a high average to maintain. 
It certainly lcx)ks as though they can do 
it, and the results of this week's games 
will give the student body a first hand 
idea of the strength of the 192.S cpiintet. 



Recent agitation by the Se-nate has 
brought to the student Ijotly of M.A-f. 
an inkling of the possibilities of "taking 
slcK-k" of our student organizations, ol 
trying to analyze their weaknesses, and 
suggesting rc-iiu-dies for their dilVic ulties. 
Without chmbt, the Se-nate will scjon bring 
be-fore the student body its proposed plan 
for revision of powers, a step whie h has 
been deemed necessary in view of t he- 
diminishing prestige of the Mass. .\ggie 
Senate, part of which loss of inlluenc-e 
has been attrihuled lo the termination of 
"I'ond I'arlies." Whatever the cause of 
the present situation, ihe conclusicm 
stems evident that the Senate, the stu- 
dent gcjverning lK)ely, should have greater 
opi)ortunilies for advancing the scK-ial, 
moial, intellectual, athletic, academic, 
etc., etc., welfare of this College.

selected teams from each class to play 
final games. The outdoor court uikju 
which praclie:es have Uen held early in

in the gymnasium of the Boy's Club in 
Amherst wasejblained that the final games

costumes may l)e dexisc-cl \er)' easily 
from stray oelds and ends od clothing if 
one uses a little ingenuity, or they may 
be rented quite reasonably. .\ costume 
dance is a success because it is the most 
informal of this type of entertainment. 
.As niasciuerades are not con\enlional, 
ease- in bearing and conversation cannot 
hell) hut follow, thus insuring the success 
of the affair. Costume elantxs are color- 
ful — a welcemie change from the every- 
day clot lies, or ihe formality of the evening 
dress. K\er>oni- iHconu-s tired of affairs 
which are neither formal nor very in- 
ftjrnial. After a while- they U'conie 
terribly nionotonenis. The ga\ , swirlin< 
colors of a maseiuerade, hcj\ve\er, put new 
life inlo the occasion, and make the spirit 
of the dance as gay as the costumes. 

Therefejre, it seems to us that whex'ver 
has the courage to shove aside his lazy 
streak and make up his mind to devise- 
or obtain an effective costume will un- 
doubtedly feel amply repaid in the end. 
Why not try it?

That a proposed plan for increasing its 
scoiK- should come f.oni within the 
Se-nale is logical, in that those on t he- 
inside have a chance to view the actual 
workings of the m.ie hiiury and also have 
the opportunity and experience of receiv- 
ing criticism from those on the outside. 
The method has a iirecedent in the re- 
organization of the Senate which was 
initiated by itself and approved by the- 
sludent Iwdy early in 191:5. He u said in 
praise of those who conceived the plan 
that ihe methcxl of electing men lo tlu- 
Se-nate, as well as the organiz;ilion of the 
siiid body, has rem. lined unchanged (ex-

years, and the selection of three Seniors 
by all the students have resulted in un- 
desirable situations at limes, such as an 
honorary athletic Senate, but have proved 
more satisfactory than any arbitrary 
limiting of membership to leaders of 
various activities or restriction on fra- 
ternity or non-fraternity representation 
could iHJssibly be.

There is d.mger that the student 
governing body here at M.A.C. may 
deteriorate into a nure interclass judiciary, 
existing onl> lor the i)rotection (?j of 
iiiisiispe-cting frosh from their arrogant 
superiors, the sophomores. At New- 
Hampshire State, a "Sophomore Court" 
(with suiR-rvision) rules the wayward 
neophytes, and to the student council 
are left tin- larger aspects of student 
government and student-faculty rela- 
tions. We- have a feeling that the present 
senlimenl in the Senate is a revulsion 
against the prevalent idea of the existence 
of the Senate solely as a freshman disci- 



.md discussion on the part of the Senate, 
although other (jrganiz.ili<ms like the 
Honor Council, the Interfraternity C.)n- 
fe-re-nce, the Interclass .Xthletic Board, 
and the .\cademic Activities Bo.inl have 
definite eluties lo iK-rform. .\«lelphia h.is 
general oversight of matters which also 
come under the jurisdiction of the Senate, 
but which cannot be c.irried out by 
.\delphia without the- sUi)ervision of the 
Senate, a condition which seems anoma- 
lous at' first themght. llowcvi-r, the meire 
general representation and sin-cilic eluties 
e)f the Sc-nale make it, rather than Adel- 
phia, which is a strictly hemorary (but 
not strictly functionless) society, the 
logical means for enforcing student senti- 
ment. To .\elelphia rightly In-longs the 
less conspicuous task of instigating or 
formulating student opinion; to the Sen- 
ate is the duty of tarrying out the ex- 
pression.

BERGAN TO LEAD 

(Continued from I'afte I) 
Bergan was one of five me-n lo receive- 
letters in the siK>rt with Captain CharU- 
I'restem '2.S of Danve-rs, Frank F. Homev- 
er '2.S of Wellesley Farms, Newell \ 
Seh.ip|>elle '2.S of Hamburg. Penn., atil 
Richard llernan '30 of Shaw sheen thf 
other memliers of the sejuad awarded the 
insignia, liergan and He-rn.m will hv tin' 
only letter men available when. the com- 
ing season rolls around, for graduation 
will take ihrc-e reliable runners in Home'.tr 
Prestem, and SchapiR-lle. 

Although a majority of the letter nu-n 
will be lost. Co.ich Derby still has thre-e 
memU-rs of the scpiad who made credit- 
able showings this past fall and should l)e 
of aid in forming next season's aggrega- 
tion. They are Tourtellot '29, Renaud 
'30, and Rolx-rtson '30. In adelilion 
several promising freshmen runners have 
been eliscovcred, among them being 
Baker, CariK-nter, Chadwick. Loomer, 
Lorrey, Nash, Northcott, Smith, and 
West. All indications point to '"^ 
availability of a wealth of material iJf

NEW COIIRSKS 

I'rofessor Dunbar has calle.l ihe tirst 
meeting of the Creek class for Monday 
• veninj;. January •,», at H p. m. The course 
seems to be a popular one. for forty-two 
students base enrolled in the course. 

Orders should be placed inuiudiately 
at the l)ookslore lor the text-bctok, .Allen's 
'•I'irst ^■^ar of t.reik", publidied by 
Maciiiillan. Th. tirst class shoiiM be 
attemUd even though the student has not 
obtained the book. The text is not abso 
lutely imperative, but is advisable. 

A new course in the History and 
Interpretation of Music, v.\\vu by Pro- 
fessor Stowell «.. (.o<lin«, will offer an 
imparallehd opportunity for the study 
of v.irious i()mi)osers and their works. 
The course is to U' ^iveu, to a certain 



extent, in collaboration with a similar 
course niven at Smith ColleRe. Smith 
College is probably the onls colle^;e in 
the country where such a course is xiven 
with Krcat artists to illustrate many of 
the lectures. I'or this reason, those 
studenis taking a Mnsi<- ."d , which meets 
Thursday evenin^js in Koom 1 11 at Skm k- 
bridue Hall, will be ^jiven a rare op|)or- 
liimly to hear a few of the artists at 
Smith College. The first class will be 
held at ("...lO p. ni.. January o, and the 
course is limited to tifiy students.

No USE trying to put a definition around 
Camel. It is as diverse and fugitive as the 
delicate tastes and fragrances that Nature 
puts in her choicest tobaccos, of which 
Camel is rolled. Science aids Nature to be 
sure by blending the tobaccos for subtle 
smoothness and mildness. One way to 
describe Camels is just to say, "They are 
good!" 

Somehow, news of Camel lia^^ pot around. 



Each smoker telling the other, we suppose. 
At any rate, it's first— in popularity as well 
as quality. It has beaten every record ever 
made by a smoke. Modern smokers have 
lifted it to a new world leadership. 

Camels request a place in your apprfcia- 

tion. Try them upon every test knowp. 

You'll find them always loyal to your hii^li- 

est standard.

this reference is made because- ine.st ol 
the nu-m»H-rs of tin- stmlei.t boely were 
present at this exercise last week.

^^ill Ik- iK-rmaneiil an.l as such it will be 
eertainly n-lle. te-.l ba. k e.n the College 
from tinu- to time. 

It is eiuite- true- that we had a just cause 
to Ik- elissiitisf^ed but she.uld we have- 
Kiveii wav to our .lisappn.val as we ehd.-' 
Would it'mU have U-en far bitter for all

feelings to ourselves at the time an.l then

etc.? If 'lu^ ^^»'"' ''••"*■ '''•' ''1'*''''^'''' 
woulel have carrie.l away an enlireK 
dilferenl impression of the student IkmIv 
and we wmilel have- had nothing to lose- 
by keeping our criticisms to ourselves 

for the time In-inK- 

rurthermore. the College authorities, 
or th.)M- in . harge of the assembly excr- 
lise-s, she.ul.l have Uen nu)re diligent in 
arranging this tirst assembly. It has al- 
ways iK-en the custom to hold nuetings 
of various kin.ls after the first assembly 
of ea.h term, lor this reason if for no 
other they shoulel have arranged a pre> 
gram which woul.l have- Ikcu completed 
on time and thu^ provule suttuieat time 
to make these nuetings worth while. 
They sh.iul.l h.i\e kiu)wn that it is prac- 
tically impossible- to limit t.) forty min- 
utes an illustrated lecture which normally 
reejuires an hour and a half or two hours 
to lie- im-senteel advantageously. 

With these- few suggestions in mind let 
us be mor.- careful in the future concern- 
ing the manner in which we receive our 
guests. If we have complaints to otter 
let us seek to enter them and make changes 
threingh our representati\e bodies.

In Censure 

Our first b.iskitb.dl game was only 
ane.the-r victory in the eyes of most 
upperclassmen. but the p.).>r freshmen 
were so iK-wil.Ure.l that they would have 
failed te) cause- the olel ch.ilK-l Ik-U to 
rc-joice- hael it not been feir several thought- 
ful soi>honiores. The se-eonel triumiih 
was nu)re reaelily lecognizeel, thanks to 
sonu- one or ejther. 

BP 

In Praise 
l-reshnu-n are showing a lUJticeable anel 
commendable attitude in regar.l to aca- 
demic activities, an attitude even In-tter 
than that of the sophe)mores. An extra- 
ordinarily large group of frosh have com- 
IKted for the Collegian, while- the Roister 
Doisters have- also In-en gr.itified with 

19:J1 supi)ort. 

BP 



Courtesy (?) 
liven though a visiting speaker exceeds 
his time, even though he exceeds it by 
twenty minutes, the virtue of patieiue 
should rettrain an impatient student IxMly 
fro») such a elemonstration of absolute 
discourtesy as was displayed at our recent 
lecture on the "Land of the Midnight 
Sun." However, it is rumored that 
speakers at Yale chapels are warneel that 
no souls are s;ived after thirty minutes, 
aiul certainly our sin-akers should alscj Ik- 
warned that no "message" (the\ alt have 
those) is put across if the time limit is 
passed. There is a reciprcKal e<ule e)f 
c ticpiette, as shown in a neighboring edi- 
torial.

Fifteen Years Ago 
The College Signal Said 

"The second annual Christmas trip of 
the Roister Doisters took the 1912-i:J 
production. "The New Boy" into seven 
towns and cities of New York and New 
Jersey, and was a most successful and 
enjoyable one, lasting from December 2G 
until January 4." Jan. 14. 

P.S. Can you imagine what would 
hapiien if such an attempt were suggested 

texlav? 

BP 

■A petition was ratified by the student 
body asking th.it hereafter examinations 
be counteil as only 59 iM-rcent of a stu- 
dent's standing in a course, and that 
every student be permitted to take all 
the exiiminations." Jan. 14. 

P.S. We wonder how often testj were 
imiMJsed during the term. Fifty j»ercent 
would now Ik> considereel a high value 
for an .-xaiiiination in most courses.

OPEN a tidy red tin of Prince

met an aroma that had so much 

come-and-get-it. Some fragrance, 

Fellows. And that's just a starter. 

Load up and light up. . • • 

Cool as final exams. Sweet as 
passing. Mild as cafe au la'it — 
mild, but with that rich, full-

smoke-gong right on the nose on 
every fire-up. You'll like this long- 
burning Prince Albert in the bowl 
of a pipe. And how! 

frRlNGE ALBERT 

— the national joy smoke! 



One of the first thitigs you 
notice about P. A. is that it never 
bites your toi.^ue or parches your 
throat, no matter how wide you 
open the smoke-throttle. It is 
one tobacco that never wears out 
its welcome. Y'ou can stoke and 
smoke to your heart's content, 
with P. A. for packing. Get some 
Prince Albert now and get going!

C^ampus Gossip 

.\ thunderstorm on Friday, the 13th of 
Januarv, during his talk in Fernald Hall, 
gave Dr. Lane of Tufts College, the 
lecturer on "The Age of the Ivarth," a 
chance to comment on the unexixcte.l 
events which are likely to result when a 
geologist gets into action.

Instructors with an understanding of 
fraternity initiations will probably thought- 
fully overl.>ok any temixjrary abstraction 
on the part of dreary-eyed frosh now that 
the neoi)hytes are being |)roiK'rly inducted 
into the sacred mysteries and the glories 
that are Greek.

HALL '28 TO LEAD 

CHEMICAL DISCUSSION 



At the meeting of the (i.x'ssmann 
Chemical S<Hiety this evening the dis- 
cussion will l>e based on the .|uestion'. 
Should freshman chemistry be retinire.l? 
The committee in charge of the meeting 
has decided on this .|uestion Ucause ol 
the sentiment of many of the under- 
classmen on this subject. The discussion 
will l)e led by J. Stanley Hall '28, vi.e- 
president of the SiKiety. 

The meeting is scheduled to lM'i;in 
promptly at sc-ven o'clock an.l will imei 
in the Library in C.iKssmann Laboratory. 
It is hoped that manv ..f the freshmen and 
soph.. mores will av.iil themselves of this 
opportunity to present their views on 
this subject since they are intimately 
invohed in these coursis. In discussing 
this question some of the seniors will 
take the negative side.

w.i> sinniiis; %try ixjorly, to say the least. 
Whatever the cause of the lack of (o 
operation with the soiiji-leader, it was 
iiotiii-alile even to the point of IninK 
txtrenuly iliscourteous. Coming haek to 
our funilaiiiental assiimi)lion (oiiierninK 
criticisni, we wonchr how many oi tho?.e 
in that nuini)er who aiidilily expressed 
their feelings were in the position to do 
NO? I ndoulitedly there were s<jniei)resent 
who were (apal)le of doin^ as good a 
job, but we venture that there were vt ry 
few who iouM have done as well under 
the lireunistancts. If there were, they 
should have l>een out on the floor trying 
out for the position of sonn-leader; if 
there were not, then tliere should have 
lutn no tleinonstration such as (ncurred 
the other ninht. 

We coninu nd the efforts of the son^- 
Ua.Ur and su«>iest that hereafter the 
student body should co-oiK-rate in the 
siiiKinn of its sonus. put some confidence 
in the ability and judununl of its strng- 
l.ader, and realize the <lifhculties under 
which he works. As a last su^nistion we 
fell that there is not a iK-rson on the 
campus who would not do well to (heck 
up now and then on the words of the 
sonns and learn sonte of the less famdiar 

honus.

have been useful this year, although the

recent encounters on the Aggie campus, 
avoiding a i)ostpoiunient of the games.

HAVE THEY HONOR? 

Very few of those who are forlimate 
enough to have an opportunity to read 
"The New Student" from week to week 
coul.l have m.ticed last week's issue with- 
out iMing startled by tin- <liscussion on 
the h..nor system, entitled "Are They 
Without Honor"? This article refers to 
the state of affairs which exists among 
the girl students at Hunter College whire 
the honor system is failing to function 

successfully- 

The many charges which have Inen 
made by the girls against themselves and 
the honor system s«em to have aroused 
in the minds of many who have read the 
amazing aicusations th.- (piestion under 
which this discussion was published in 
"The New Student." S>nie of the anony 
mous ac(Usitions whi<h apiH-are<l are: 
"Nine-tenths of the girls cheat. Only 
si.xty-tive of all the girls in the college are 
honest, (.iris carry n»»tes up their sleeves 
in examinations. C.irls will theat whetlier 
the teacher is in the room or not." 

We sincerely hope that this is not true 
with all girl stiirlents and es|»ecially among 
those enrolled in this institution. A glance 
at the records of the Honor Council here 
will sh<.w that no girl student has ever 
been called before this organization in 
answer to a charge. This is certainly 
quite surprising but there is only one of 
two logical conclusions at which we may 
arrive. The co-e<ls here are either firm 
adherents of the Honor System as estab- 
lished or else- their fellow students do not 
fed inclined to report any infractions of 
dishonest\ on their part. It is imin.ssible 
to siiy which is true in this case but let 
us hope that our co-eds will always con- 
duct themselves in this resiHCt so that 
the lKK)ks will never have to record a 
violation on their part. However, if 
such a breach is noticed, we sincerely 
trust that the observers will not W 
prejudiced by their chivalry but will 
carry out the duly of trust and honor 
which they have pledged themselves to 
fidfill.

COl'RTESY AGAIN 



Between the h.d\es of the basketball 
game List Friday night, wiih the iniv. 
of M.iinc. we were reminded of a piece 
of adviie' which we once overheard. The 
advice was this, "Never criticize thc> i.er- 
formance of an individual unless you are' 
capable of doing a lutter job yourself." 
That imce of advice ha- suu k in our

White avenged themselves by nosing out 
(apt. Temple's e|uintet, 2;} to 21. Last 
ye-.ir no game was played, and lK)th teams 
laid strong claims to the New F:ngland 
title. This year, however, one or the 
other will U- eliminated from this claim. 
Springfield h.is enjoyed a very success- 
ful season to elate, winning eight out of 
nine encounters. Their record for the- 
se-ason is as follows:

ciation of and a liking for a so-called 
classical subject in this, the state's insti- 
tution for the promotiem of agriculture. 
Students professing contempt fcjr the 
agricultural sciences will now have an 
opportunity to elenionstrate their under- 
standing of the artistic and aesthetic. It 
would Ik' interesting to make a survey 
of the cast and the audienc-e to determine 
the correlation Intwcen interest and major

Now that we have a s|>ecial committee 
of students as.sisting in the selection ol 
desirable siK-akers for assembly, we ma\ 
l«M)k forward to next term's program with 
intense anticipation. It is m)t wi.se to 
exiKct too much, however. .\n over- 
critical attitude is likely to degenerate 
into an observation of a sjK-aker's faults 
rather than his virtues— and they all have 
some of the latter, strange as it may seem.

Seven memln-rs of the Massachusetts 
Agricultural C'ollege Staff recently at- 
tended the American Fxonomic .\ssocia- 
tion and Farm Flconomic- .Association 
meetings at Washington, D. C riiese 
were: Dr. Alexander F:. Came, Miss 
l.orain Jefferson, .Mr. Hubert Vount, 
Miss Mary J. Foley, Mr. Ilarohl B. 
Rowc, Mr. Ronald I.. Mighell, and Mrs. 
T. H. Rozinan. Dr. (ante read a paper 
at the larni Fxonomics Session. Dr. 
Frederick B. Cutler attended a meeting 
of the American Sociological .Association 
held at Washington, D. C, during the 
same week. 



During the fall term of the Home 
l.conomics Department conducted the- 
Home luonomics Forum which broad- 
casts veery Monday at two o'clcKk from 
Statitm WBZ, Springfield, Mass. Among 
those who lectured for the Fall Forum 
were Miss Flclna L. Skinner. Miss Margaret 
Hamlin. Miss Helen Knowlton, and Miss 
Marion I.. Tucker. The F:xtension Home 
Flconomics Department is having charge 
of the I'orum for the winter term. .M- 
ready the interesting talks have Ikcii 
cemtinued, given at the same time. Last 
Monday Miss F:sther B. CcH>ley gave a 
talk on "Clothing". Some time soon 
Miss May FL. Foley will sjKak on "Nutri- 
tion", and Mrs. Harriet J. Haynes will 
present a talk cm "Home Management." 



To the F:ciitor: 

The publicity and evident supi)or 
given to the Senate's new powers by tli 
last week's Collegian is dce|)ly appreciated, 
and we ho|H' that the oiitimism man: 
fested in your pai)er will not be disillu- 
sicmed in the measure as it works out. 
However, we feel that the general acclaim 
given this effort as passed, is entirely our 
of proiH)rtion to its merit, since the sy-- 
tem of iKjwers is as yet untried, and may 
cpiite |X)ssibly prove to U' ineffectual. 
Rather than |)raise today and censuro 
tomcjrrow, let us maintain an attitude of 
consistent co-operation until the measure- 
has i)roved itself one way or another. 

With regard to the origin and tlevelop- 
ment of these j)owers as they concern tin; 
Senate, no one memUr of the group was 
responsible for their final acceptance by 
the students. The matter was discussed 
and gradually built into an organized 
system in open meetings, with all mem- 
bers contributing the criticisms and sug- 
gestions that finally resulted in the sys- 
tern as it stands. The measure was di - 
Iveloped and persisted in by the Senate- 
grouj), and ncjt by any individual memlM r. 
if credit for the effort is in order, Kt 
it l)e given to those faculty meml)ers and 
students that were willing to grant th( ir 
representative group an opix)rtunity u> 
work out a plan for increasing its own 
effectiveness, and improving the stan- 
dards of the Institution. 
Sincerely, 

The Student Senate, 
J. F". Quinn, Presiden!.

Juniors who were unfortunate enough to 
be selected as class characters for the 
Index may now bask in the publicity inci- 
dent to their designaticms as such |K'rson- 
ages as "cigarette fiend," or "das fusser". 
If these titles really had any signiticanee, 
the iK-arers would heartily long for ob- 
scurity.

At last our Drill Hall will \rc restored 
to a conditiem comparable to its former 
days of splendor, and laughing voices, 
gay colors, resplendent uniforms, con- 
servative tuxedos, etc.. ad infinitum, 
will bring b.uk memories of pre-war 
celelirations. In other words, Aggie is 
going to have a military ball in the 
renovated Drill Hall. We shouldn't Ix- 
giving the elance all this free aelverti.sing. 
but the contrast Ix-tween the present 
ccmdition of the well-known edifice which 
will harlH)r the function and its inde- 
scribable apix-arancc last year moves us 
to sympathize with the M.A.C. landmark.

Although our court stars no longer 
need fear the expect e-d but inopiM)rtune 
accumulation of bits of wckxI from the 
basketball fltK)r, the- force- with which a 
visiting player struck the tl(M)r during 
the Maine game raises the (luesticm of the 
relative hardness of the new surface. .\t 
least the old boards gave way somewhat. 
In fact, the-y frc-<iuently gave way en-

Twelve wood bltxk prints by Thoreau 
Mae-Donald depicting nature and land- 
sca|x- scenes of Canadian beauty com- 
prise the collection that is now on view 
in the Memorial BuiMiiig. The artist. 
who is a Canadian himself, has made the 
cuts very vivid and strong in detail, 
giving them a more realistic apiK-arance 
th.iii most of the blexk prints that are 
s<) ]M.i)ular at the present time. 

In one excellent cut on display, "Tril- 
lium", Mr. MacDonahl has shown real 
skill in detail, the flowers standing out 
distinctly, with every ixtal jjerfectly 
shaix'd. 

One of the gcxxl landsca|K- prints shows 
a Canadian farmhouse in autumn, as the 
name, "Autumn Farmhouse", implies. 
The piles of cornstalks in front of the 
house and the flight of birds overhead 
all bring the idea of autumn. 

These prints are secured through the 
courtesy of Professor Frank A. Waugh. 
who is lending them from his personal 
collection for this exhibition. 



A big improvement was shown by the 
co-eds this week in their shtxjting. Re-

in the siime way that we learn from the

If "May I cut?" is said 



in a most 



jxjlite manner, it is not an aiK)logy for 
having said it in a more imixjlite wa\ 
five or six limes Ixfore to the same 
jx-rson in the same evening. Neverthe- 
less, there are a few unmannered, ill-bred, 
and undesired individuals who think that 
these words have a magic charm and ii 
saitl incessantly at each and every l"rida\ 
night dance will pardon one for a'.! 
breaches of etiquette. 

This idea has Ixen growing since thr 
first few dances of the college year. Ih. 
line of stags is lengthening ami new 
faces are apix-aring, some absolutely uii 
known to the regular students. 

It isn't because of the saving. Every 
stag pays the full couple-price. It ism 
because of scarcity of women, (^nly 1 
small part of the Ablx-y was there la 1 
Saturday night and surely all the ret 
are not campused. It must lx> th.n 
would-lx- bachelors are un|K>pular an I 
cannot get dates. They surely are n..i 
adding to their jxjpularity by what thes 
are doing now. 

Perhaps they are true to one mist rem- 
and when some more up-and-comin< 
friend gets ahead of them they decide to 
go to the dance alone, pay the same pri. <■ 
and have more dances with that speci.il 
co-ed than the man who escorted her. 

Is there any remedy for this state >>\ 
af?airs? Will the dances come to a stani 
where they will have to Ix- discontiniu'l 
as they were last year? Will il be nece- 
sary to offer a lx)unty of five dollars .1 
head for each young lady presentetl un 
the scene? 



ANIMAL HUSBANDRY 

CLUB HOLDS MEETIN(; 



„v.,» o I^st Wednesday evening. January J.') 

in the high'scht'xjl^at'weymouth. Mass". 1 the second regular meeting of the Ani.nal 



ma'ter with reshman chemistry?" Per 
hai* those who are actually involved 11 



beihK a hied to th- r.w-a.y'r li^t of {x-r, 
odicals but the arguments Un are much 
more numerous than those against it. Let 
us first state the strongest argument 
against a.lding it to the library. A few 
Ix-lieve that this p.iblicaticm is radical 
and exerts a bad influence ii|X)n student 
opinion. Th.- reason for this is that the 
niajoritv of the articles are written from 
the students' point of view instead of 
from that of recognized educators. 

Ill contrast to this there is much to lie 
s;iid in favor of it. The first argument is 
that it represents student ideas as ex- 
pressed bv student editors. It was not so 
very long ago when this ix-ricxlical pub- 
lished si'wral articles by a student who 
was at that time editor-in-chief of the 
Colli- f-iun. These articles were far from 
Ixing radical in the view which they pre- 
sented. The numlxr of references to this 
publication which have apixared in these 
columns from tinx- to time during the 
past few years offers further evidence 
against the argument that it is radical. 
In aiUlition to such articles as these "The 
New Student" in a few pages sums up 
what stiichnts are <h>ing in other colleges 
and universities in the way of student 
activities.

contributed illuminating answers, but the

MAKE PREPARATIONS 

FOR WINTER CARNIVAL 



Despite the lack of snow, plans are 
being formulated for the 1928 revival of 
the old-lime Winter Carnival. At a meet- 
ing last Wednesday the committee de- 
cided to invite representatives from the 
Outing Club, the (iirls' Club, and the 
Senate to their next meeting which will 
be held Wednesday, Feb. 1. At that time 
the sulKommittees in charge of the diffi^r- 



Husbandry Club was held in Stockbri(l^;i' 
Hall. Mr. John S. Clark, manager ul 
the Caunsett Farm for Marshall Fi« M 
was the speaker of the evening and he 
gave an interesting talk on "The Business 
Side of the Pure-bred Cattle Industry." 
Refreshments were served.

Saturday night at Concord the prc)-

Idled the hall. The Middlesex County

Parent Teachers' Association backed t he- 
concert which seemingly achie\ed much 
success. Dancing followed the .ondud-

to indulge in the terpsi.horean art. Many 
aliinini were present, and as the ( .lee-

Freshman rules were given one- of their 
ixriodic boosts last week by the unex-

of neophytes on the campus with such 
imix-dimenta as bathrolxs and barrel 
sta\es. The college year is not yet over.

Now that the women students have 
intiliated a "rot)m Ix-autiful" contest, we 
suggest that a similar competition among 
the men Ix- started. Consider the ad- 
vantages to everyone cemceined if reK)m- 
ers in the dormitories and fraternity 
houses really tried to improve their sur- 
roundings. Of course, some of the more 
common decorations such as street signs, 
dance j)rograms, paeldles. lK>ttles, and 
pictures of favorite nu-mlH-rs of the c«»n- 
trary sex should Ix- barred. Worthwhile 
pictures or drawings, harmonious color 
elTeits, neatness, and originality would 
doubtless receive credit. Professor 
Waugh's annual neiktie classic remains 
one of the few attempts at artistic iin- 
piovement on tlu- c.impiis. Why not

l-Aeryoiie seems to appreciate lu- 
sweater and certificate, but we have never 
noticed many academics medals dis- 
played. Surely, the scarcity of med.ds i- 
not .liie to any inferiority conipU-\ coii- 
cerning the work for which they wen- 
given. We ret all the suggestion of a pre.l.-- 
cessor, "How al)out aca.lei.iic sweaters.-" ' 
They are so big and warm, and a me.l.d 
is so small and cold, especially those 
silver ones.

1 KNOW what I like in a pipe, and what I like 
is good old Prince Albert. Fragrant as can be. 
Cool and mild and long-burning, right to the 
bottom of the bowl. Welcome as the week-end 
reprieve. Welcome . . . and satisfying! 

No matter how often I load up and light up, 
I never tire of good old P. A. Always friendly. 
Always companionable. P. A. suits my taste. 
I'll say it does. Take my tip, Fellows, and load 
up from a tidy red tin. 

Fringe albert 

— no other tobacco is like it!

This is -.1 small college and n.iliir.ilK 
everybody's business and private alfairs 
are common talk am<.ni;sl us all. but is it 
iu-ces>ary for blasphemous .md unlrinh-

inrsonal feelings but is also <letrimeiit.il

referred. Yet- what dance, what party, 
or what week-en<l passis but that groups 
of men ^M\wr in the fraternity houses. 
riH)minK places, or dorms and confine 
thein-tlves to "ihrowiuK dirt"? Not one. 
If iiDthin^i; complimentary or tnuhful 
may U- s^aid. it slu.ws only an iniWcile 
knowledi;e of the word "breeding" to 
conmient upon them. 

M.A.C. has, we hoix-. itleals for which 
it stan.ls. ideals for wliiih we are sup- 
posedly working; hard to uphold and by 
which we, as well as the College, will b«- 
judged later in life. If this CoUem- were 
to Ik- ilHl^ed by the way we siM-.ik of our 
fellow stiKlents, by the talk that shows 
the base cf.ntent ot our minds, then the 
asricultur.il and small town farniin« ide.ils

it i, lirM inlerestinn to RO into the 
history of this <iuesiion and see what has 
Ihcii the .ittitude of the students in this 
res|Mct ill the past. The last vote of thi.s 
nature w.is taken a few years aRO and 
niember- of the I wo upi)er classes will 
ree.ill ihat at th.ii time the stmlents 
\()H(I Mron^ly in fa\«r of toats at both 
. haial ami assembly. The sentiment now 
>eems to favor leciuirinjj coats only at 
assembly and not at cha|xl. 

riure are several in our midst who are 
evitUntly not much interested in tin- 
affairs of the student Ixxly for only ;i7() 
v<ites were cast out of a |>ossil)le numlx-r 
of approximately .'>;$.">. (»f course it is 
impossible lo sity definitely whether this 
was the result of indifference on the l)art 
of some or iKcause of the large luimber 
who were absent. We ho|H' that it is the 
latter which is at fault. 

.Mlhough no olfi( ial adion has been 
taktn on this vole at time of Roing to 
press by the .Student Senate, the vote 
shows conclusively the attitude of the 
iiiajorily of those of us who are at all 
int.resled in this matter. With this in 
mind il may be well to alter the Senate 
rule reg.ir.linu this <|uestion and thus 
make it repies.iit.il i\e of student opinion 
as it now exists. 

\\( iiel sure that action on the part ol 
tin- Sii.it e will soon lie forth* oniing. In 
the meantime we have only to wait. 
W hen the Senate has had time to consider 
the matter carefulK , then will be the 
time m act actordini; to the opinions of 
the ni.ijority. The Senate h.is given us 
the chance to express our feelings, an<l 
now we mu-l support it by abiding with 
its decision. It m.iy not 1h' satisfactory 
to all of Us. but that is not surprising in 
a group the size of ours. We shoiilfl Ik- 
willing to give up our own individual ideas 
if the majority decitles against us. Ke- 
K.irdUss of our own feeling in the matter, 
lit Us stand ready to bai k our Senate in 
its final decision.

in these columns as to the Senate wearing 
some s|K(ial hat di<l not meet with much

testify to the marvelous shrinking la-

probably from some s<jphomore struggling

The fervent communications which 
h.ive recently apiK-aied in neiglihoring 
columns have incre.ised the demand lor 
the Colli-iiiaii on We<lnes<lay afternoon, if 
nothing more. .Xrtist'y of composition 
rather than of ideas has evidently domi- 
nated the writers.

A new book dedicated to the memory 
of Dr. William J. Beal. late of Amherst, 
will be on that account interesting to the 
people of this neighborhcmd. Ihe Uwk is 
by Professor Burt<»n O. Longyear of the 
C'oloradtj College of Agriculture, and 
deals with trees and shrubs of the Rocky 
Mountain region. 



i'rofessor Frank A. Waugh has an 
illustrated article in the current number 
of American Forests and Forest Life 
entitled "Through the Trees." The arti- 
cle discusses certain phases of landsca|)e 
anhitecture.

,iii<i Head of the Department, is now in

The C(jLLE(ilAN is at all timeg glad to publish 
any communications which may be sent to it, but 
ttie Editors will as.suine no responsibility for the 
views expri-ssed, and do not necessarily endorse 
such views. 

To the Editor 

of the Collegian. 
Dear Sir: 

It seems to me that some of the recent 
communications to the Collegian have 
been written in an inspirational miMxl and 
without level-headed retlection or re- 
consideration. Perhaps they arc views of 
jHrsons not thoroughly accpiainted with 
their sul)ject, or of ix-o!)le who have not 
lived long enough. < Hy "lived" I do not 
mean the length of one's life in years, 
but in exjx-rience and reflect ion. I Much 
retlection leads to kindliness of spirit. 

I'ndoubtedly these writers have |)re- 
scnted criticisms worthy of contempla- 
tion; but I Ix'lieve something should be 
said regarding the method of presentation 
of the subjects in the issue of February .S. 
Personally, 1 think that the Memorial 
Kooni chairs shouhl remain in the .Memo 
rial k<xjm. but the writer of the article 
might have Ix-en a bit more courteou- 
and discreet in his accusiitions. 

1, t<Jo. could 1m- more enlightened on 
my subject, yet 1 do know that the jxr 
sons res|K)nsible f(jr the in<>\ing of tin 
chairs to tin- Loggia were constructivi 
iritics, trying to iinpro\e certain con 
dilions. .Vlmitting that ewrywhere bail 
ixople mingle with g(KMl people, I am 
certain that the majority of sludent- 
loncerned with this new scheme havi 
iioblt r puriMises than those attributed ti> 
them by the writer of the first article. 

('•ranting that honest criticism is .i 
KiMxl ihing, and that most \iews presented 
in the column have sincerity behind them 
Miim of us would do well to i)ause aii' 
rclleet a little more.

Defensively, the team was strong, hold- 
ing the fast offense displayed by the 
\isitors to merely a passing game and 
keeping the area near the basket well 
ct.Ncnd. The t)ffense, however, was 
jxiwerless. which meant that Pratt did 
not have to score a very large total to 
clinch the game. "Kay" Mann was the

Once again the Dean's «)lliic h.is been 
visited by anxious students and others to 
view the s|Hctacle hung U-fore the public 
eye. In some institutiims, the "Dean's 
Hoanl" has a more j)leasing siunificame. 
similar to our hcmor groups. One cannot 
keep his accomplishments, go<xl or bati, 
from Ix-coming tonnnon knowledge in 
college. We can imagine a senior Uxjking 
forward with pleasure to the shelter of 

private life.
